Super Bowl Wrap Up...With the Best Ads

And now, my favorite ad from last night’s big game: I give you THE DORITOS GOAT.
The Baltimore Ravens beat the San Francisco 49ers 34-31 in Super Bowl 47.
Ray Lewis had a relatively quiet night. He was held to seven tackles, zero sacks and nine murders.
CBS promoted "2 Broke Girls" throughout the game. Speaking of 2 broke girls, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams joined Beyoncé on stage for the halftime show.
Everyone in America already knows, but a POWER OUTAGE interrupted the Super Bowl for 34 minutes last night, right after half time. The Baltimore Ravens were ahead 28 to 6, before HALF the lights in the Superdome went out. And once the power was restored, the San Francisco 49ers made a HUGE comeback . . . but fell just short and lost 34 to 31.
Here's what happened . . . The teams played a minute and 38 seconds of the third quarter, before the lights went out on the side of the stadium behind San Francisco's sideline. Apparently it was because of a power surge coming in to the stadium from outside. CBS was broadcasting the game, and they lost power too.
That's why they went to commercial without explaining what happened. When they came back, only one sideline reporter, Steve Tasker, had a microphone that worked. After about 34 minutes, full power was restored and the game resumed.
The Ravens led 28 to 6 before the power failure . . . but the delay seemed to give the 49ers new life. They scored 17 points in the next FOUR minutes and 10 seconds, and outscored the Ravens 25 to 6 the rest of the game.
They even had a chance to take the lead with a minute and 50 seconds left . . . but the Ravens stopped them on fourth down at the five-yard line.
With Super Bowl 47 now history . . . let's do a quick review with the Top Things We Learned From Last Night's Super Bowl.
Without his helmet on, Colin Kaepernick looks like a confused 12-year-old.
In high definition, Joe Flacco's eyebrows are TERRIFYING.
Even though no one in the media really talked about it, apparently, the two coaches . . . were BROTHERS!
Another fine spot from last night was from Ram, who took the serious route with Instagram-style images of Americana, farmers AND PAUL EFFING HARVEY narrating? YES.
